Sam Heughan stopped by The Kelly Clarkson Show to talk about Outlander, fan art, and his upcoming movie, It’s All Coming Back To Me. The American Idol alum started the interview by talking about their shared enthusiasm for Scotland. Kelly then revealed that she herself is a big fan of Outlander, crediting her mom for getting her into the show years ago. Then the conversation shifted towards the fact that intimacy coaches are now a thing for a lot of series, including Outlander.
Intimacy Coaches on Outlander
“It’s absolutely helpful,” Heughan reveals. “I introduced our coach to the production. And honestly, we were quite naive and young when we first started.” “We were kind of dropped in the deep end, you know. We had to sort of work it out for ourselves. Now we have someone who’s there to help advise, to help guide us and not just ourselves, but the younger members of the cast as well.” Heughan continues. “It takes you as the actor out of the equation and makes it easier to just get into this. Because it can be quite awkward for not only the actors but the crew who have to stand there and watch you guys for hours.”

When Clarkson asked Heughan if he’s received any art from fans of the series, he “I’ve received all kinds of things from a duvet with my face all over it, ” Heughan smiled, joking about he sleeps with it at night. To little dolls of us to crochet pictures, it’s very creative, very creative.” Heughan went on to reveal his mother is actually an artist, but the family gene didn’t pass down to him.
